the president is leading look at this number, economic optimism. 57% now believe the economy is recovering. that number is up six points in just the past few weekz. ultimately this race will be won in nine battleground states. florida, virginia, and ohio romney is tight in the races with the states of fluidity, florida and virginia. in florida obama and romney are neck and neck. virginia romney has narrowed the lead from 5 to 2. another statistical tie. in ohio the president has improved his standing. he leads romney there by eight points. and for those wondering about the party idea the sample is less democratic in ohio this time than the last poll. digging deeper into our numbers we divided thet battleground states by three measures. president's job rating. romney's favorability rating that number is still under water he has problems and the question of which candidate is better equipped to manage the economy. remember the unemployment rate is 5.9% in virginia. romney's favorable in florida but under in virginia and ohio. when it comes to who is better able to manage the economy a questi
much to improve the economy, but he is waiting for one of them to say something concrete about how they'll fix immigration. >> well, i have friends. i have family members that are not legally here in the country, and there is no solution in sight. >> two more presidential debates to go. latinos here will be watching closely. miguel marquez, cnn, denver. >>> the number of potential latino voters growing by 50,000 every month. it is a voting block that could have i major impact on the presidential election. join cnn for a closer look at the fight to win the latino vote. latino in america courting their vote, 8:00 eastern sunday on cnn. >> it was a big night for mitt romney, but was it enough to move the polls. take a look at what voters thought about this debate by the numbers. president obama about to make his pitch to voters in denver. we'll bring that to you live. ad people are driving this change. that's the per of human resources. the society... for human resource management and its members know... how to harness that power, because we help develop it. from the next economy, to the n
the economy -- >> let's get back to medicare. the president said that the government could provide the service at a lower cost and without a profit. if that's the case then it will always be the best product that people can purchase. >> just a minute, governor. >> my experience is the private sector is typically able to provide a better product at a lower cost. >> can the two of you agree that the voters have a choice, a clear choice between the two of you on medicare? >> absolutely. >> all right. so to finish quickly, briefly on the economy, what is your view about the level of federal regulation of the economy right now? is there too much? and in your se, mr. president, should there be more? beginning with you, this is not a new two-minute segment. we'll go for a few minutes and then we're going to go to health care. okay? >> regulation is essential. you can't have a free market work if you don't have regulation. as a business person, i had to have -- i needed to know the regulations. i needed them there. you couldn't have people opening up banks in their garage and making loans. you have to
to the commission or the candidates. the segments will be three on the economy and one each on health care the role of government, and governing. with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics, and choices. both candidates will also have two-minute closing statements. the audience here in the hall has promised to remain silent. no cheers applause boos hiss among other noisy distracting things, so we may all concentrate on what the candidates have to say. there is a noise exception right now, though as we welcome president obama and governor romney. [ cheers and applause ] >> jim. >> gentlemen, welcome to you both. let's start the economy segment 1, and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about creating new jobs? you have two minutes -- each of you have two minutes to start. a coin toss has been determined mr. president you go first. >> obama: thank you very much for this opportunity. i want to thank governor romney and the university of colorado for your hospitality. 20 years ago i became the luckiest man on earth because
they will turn it into something political. it will really be hard, when you think about the economy we are in right now, how can you tell individuals we will raise the price of work did right now we need more work. it would be a bad time to do that. both sides will ultimately agree on that. dagen: we are looking at this calendar with 20 days left at work just for the representatives to deal with this. why isn't the uncertainty, why isn't there any other business that would impact the economy. >> it is entirely possible. you would almost think if the economy or the marcos thought they would let us reach the cliff go over it, you would see a lot of forward activity. the fact you are not seeing it suggests that markets think we get to the final days they will actually come to a deal. a little over a year ago it was that we were days from government default, but, ultimately, they came to a deal. dagen: john, good to see you. as always, thank you. connell: breaking news now. it is on the libor investigation. this is from the exclusive reporting from our own charlie gasparino. chuck grassley
's focus is domestic. >> yep. >> no bigger domestic issue than the economy, as we know. we'll have a rather open format. do you think we'll actually hear a specific from mr. romney on how he plans for a revenue-neutral 20% tax cut across the board for every american? are we going to hear that tonight in. >> no, absolutely not. i think what you're going to hear and see is more of a tactic. sort of a communications tactic of making it sound like he's talking like a plan, like that 17,000 cap he threw out the other day and then his team walked that right back. probably -- >> karen, that's known as i've got a hole in my pocket, dear liza. >> that's right. you'll hear him talk about a number of these things as if it sounds like a plan, but without any specifics. i think what you'll see from the president is more specifics. again, the president actually has a record to talk about. i mean, put forward a health care plan. happened to be, you know, based on mitt's, but whatever. he has a jobs plan, a number of things of specifics he can point to whereas romney doesn't. i think that will be part of t
the president created a big problem for himself. i don't think he explained himself very well on the economy. i thought he was off his game. i was stunned tonight. rash elyou just mentioned about time, the president needs to get in and fight for that time. there's people that expect him to fight for that time. >> i thought the one thing that mitt romney did tonight that he has not done for the duration of the campaign and was very effective was just lop off the right wing of his party. he didn't care about them tonight. if something was popular, more money for community schools, he was for that. it didn't matter if it would make the right wing, how. whenever the president named a popular policy, more spending on education, more money on medicare, he was for it and he would attack the president for things that were unpopular. so the question becomes can you effectively tie mitt romney to the republican party and its core commitments, both how it acts in the house and the things he has said during the republican debates. and that never really happened tonight. but those of course are the facts of
the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mostly romney. roll it. >> the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds, and you get -- and you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson -- would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes. >> are you going to let me finish with what i have to say. >> remember that moment? i guess my question, having seen that back and forth, remember, you know, romney kind of getting into rick perry's face, can you be that aggressive to
: tonight is the debate and the economy will be front and center. would you expect the president to admit any of this policies did not work? >> reporter: i would expect the president would deflect attention away from his record. if if you ask where is the middle class going next year after the election, you have -- i would say that the middle class is going to get maybe even worse off because we look like we are head for a real slowdown in the economy and the word recession next year has been used frequently. >> it's being bantered about. stu varney, thank you so much. bill: joe biden was in charlotte, north carolina making that comment. 15 electoral votes. a look at how he succeed, 4.3 million votes cast in the state. president obama won by 14,000 votes. he carried a 100,000 vote margin in charlotte which is where mr. biden was. he had a narrow margin of victory, more than any other state. in charlotte unemployment is above 10%. we'll see how they do, it's tough to win against those numbers. jamie: those numbers are seen in many places,en it will be interesting to hear about what they sa
mid election. >> no, but the facts are the facts. if we're talking about jobs and the economy, the greatest thing about this campaign is that voters have no way to say this there's not a difference between the parties. i don't care what you say, romney and the president are in different directions for the country, that's with fiscal policy, domestic policy, with healthcare especially. it is abundantly clear, and i don't know why the president didn't explain why the 5 trillion dollars that's going to be loss and why the 2 trillion is expected. i don't know why as romney said, you keep repeating and repeating, but the fact remains that what happened to the 47% of the people that were written off. aren't they included in the middle class? connell: he never mentioned that. >> he never mentioned it. connell: that had to be on purpose. that had to be -- i mean that was something that's been out there forever. he had to think oh i'm not going to bring this up. >> then why take all these notes on things this guy is saying, where he reversed himself, he should have been just smiling lo
in coordination with this, the question of is president obama handling the economy still not great but better. anything like that, helps the incumbent. remember, president obama's not going to be able to make the case that he fixed everything in four years. he's not trying to do that. what he has to say is i've made progress and can make more. in order to make that argument you have to be able to show people you've made progress or at least have people believe you've made progress, movement in the right direction numbers suggest that he's making that case. >> and we also have our new telemundo/nbc news poll breaking within this hour and that shows a 50-point lead among hispanic voters. 71/21 likely voters. that is a huge lead. the question is, of course, whether there is enthusiasm among hispanic voters and whether they're going to come out and vote. >> right. and even bigger gap than 69/31 what president obama beat john mccain among latinos in 2008. look, this is a problem in this election for republicans, andrea, but a bigger problem in 2016, 2020 and beyond. the hispanic community is obvio
left behind a wife and two daughters. >>> need a sign that the economy is picking up? belly up to the bar. beer sales are up for the first time since 2008. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. is this a bellwether? >> it is, just like lipstick. lipstick sales went up during the recession. they couldn't spend big on other things. beer is a great indicator. it looks like young men seem to be pushing up beer sales. brewers have said that beer sales have struggled over the past few years because young, blue-collared guys were hit hard by the the recession. now there's a recovery. unemployment rate is falling for men in their 20s. more jobs means more money to spend. wall street journal says beer sales are actually up 2% this year, following three years of decline. it really say fun way of looking at the economy, of how beer is affected by the way the economy is doing. overall -- you're laughing. overall it's typically considered recession proof. it's cheap. but for $8 or $9, you can get a nice six pack at home without breaking the bank. and president obama also has a hom
moderator jim lehrer. >> let's start with the economy, segment one, and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you go about creating new jobs. you have two minutes each of you to start print a coin toss determines, mr. president, you go first. >> four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis in the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system had frozen up. and because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we've begun to fight our way back over the last 30 months, we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we've still got a lot of work to do. and so the question here tonight is where we've been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations, that we would be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in educati
assistant to george w. bush. santita let me start with you. americans are very unhappy with the economy, the president says he's unhappy too. is his challenge to explain how the next four years would be any different? and if you look at his convention speech i'm not sure there is any difference. >> you know i think that his great challenge is the same challenge that governor romney faces tomorrow night, which is to be relaysable an rerelatable and likable. likability really does matter. gregg: you don't think people really want specifics, tell me mr. president how the next four years is any different. >> you know, gregg you have to balance style with substance. the fact is they'll have to run against their narrative in a time of great economic want. you've got a very, very wealthy man who is running. i'm not saying he can't relate to the poor but governor romney is going to have to do that. president obama is someone who is prove sore kwral and known for his excellence. gregg: insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. the president has been describ
be very interesting. >> jobs, economy, health care, et cetera. >> they will have a suitcase full of zingers preparred to just hurl back and forth at each other. >> i thought that it was interesting, the expectations, people expect, president obama, by 2-1 to win the election. not that they're endorsing. if you look at just a year ago, by an 18-point margin, thought the president would lose. just in a matter of one year. >> expect him to win the debate convincingly as well. see what happens. when it comes to the race. it's much closer. when it comes to the race. shows the mitt romney at 49 losing to obama with 47. much closer in that regard. >> so the first one wednesday. then we have two more coming up. biggest one no doubt. >> 36 days to go. >> 36 days to go. my goodness. >> not that we are counting. >>> as the the war in afghanistan winds down, the u.s. military reached a grim new milestone. 2,000 service members have now died in the war. the latest casualty, it was over the weekend when a soldier died in a fire fight with afghan troops. an american civilian contractor was also
through the debates, and look once again to the economy as the determining factor in this election. >> you know, jim, we heard from kevin madden, the romney campaign adviser on getting romney ready for this debate tomorrow, here's what he said. >> just trying to get the governor familiar with the head to head one on one format has been a focus because in all the previous debates that we have had, it has been, you know, nine people on stage, trying to -- trying to capture a policy in 90 seconds. the format here is a little different, a little moreting us going back and forth, how the single moderator will be controlling the debate between two candidates. >> so we know, jim, they have been at this for a couple of weeks. mentioned the big news today, i say big being semifacetious, we know romney had chipotle lunch. he's been prepping, prepping and prepping. looking to the next 24 hours, will they really be practicing up until, you know, tomorrow night, 9:00? >> reporter: i think so, brooke. what we're told by the campaign earlier today is that mitt romney will actually do his debate walk thro
are busy cramming ahead of wednesday night's face-off which will put a focus on jobs and the economy. it is monday, october 1st. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >>> good monday morning, everybody. i'm paula faris. >> i'm john muller. i threw my scripts in the garbage had to fish them back out. that's strange. >> an indicator of the kind of monday we are having. >> rob nelson is off this morning. we well have debate preparation and predictions coming up. >>> this half-hour, a solemn moment in the longest war, u.s. troop deaths in afghanistan have reached a grim milestone. >> then, eye-popping new numbers about kids and television. you are going to be surprised just how many hours they take in every day, even babies glued to the tube. and you know, i know in our home it's on just as background as well. >> i watched so much tv. so when i see the reports i say, i seem to be doing all right. >> well, you know. >> yeah, may be debatable. later, if it is monday morning must be time to recap nfl sunday action along with how we did with our picks. paula is rocking by th
the economy. it has been a challenge a bit for them. but you point out that really a lot of this race has been thus far on style, on likability, so romney -- romney, what, needs to talk about his family, your words. let me quote you, you say yes, he's tried to do that many, many times before, but there is always hoping that this time it will work. why will it work this time? >> it might work because more people are watching. when he talked about it during the convention, the ratings were really very, very low on that. and he had to share the platform with everyone else. with christie and with rubio. this time around it is him versus the president. and this is his chance to throw out some relatable points, to say things like i'm in public service because of my father. i want to improve the country because of my family. i think if he can throw one or two pointsike that, he can turn it around. but don't expect him to start crying. his not that guy. he shouldn't pretend to be that guy. he shouldn't pretend to be ronald reagan because he's not ronald reagan. he should simply run on his credentials
. >> reporter: assaulting our senses, our economy, and our health. jim avila, abc news, lake petenwell, wisconsin. >> that is nasty stuff. >> oh, that's an understand statement, but the wisconsin department of natural resources says the best way to treat this is naturally, but they say it could take several years to get rid of it completely. in fact, there was a large amount of -- lake erie, almost a third of the surface, covered. >> cut big time into the fishing industry there. apparently it's in more or less every state. peaks august through september. nearly every state in the union. clearly really bad there. in the great lakes area. >> scientific term, cyano bacteria. >> yeah. >> cyano meaning green for blue? >> right. that's what i heard. a condition most of us could ever imagine. >> in this connected day and age, what is it like to not use e-mail? can we all dream about that? the answer when we come back on "world news now." >> hmm. >> announcer: abc's "world news noúl >>> okay. so we all have our smartphones, our iphones, our nanos, everything else, right? all those electronic
think has the better skillset to move the economy forward? i think foreign policy matters. clearly look, an op-ed and then paul ryan saying what he said with laura engram is not by accident. it's purposeful. i think they wind up coming back to the economy. >> that is the subject of the debate unless they go off topic. chris cizilla, see you later. thank you so much. >>> and foreign policy is, of course, a crushing issue for all of those with soldiers deployed and their families at home and three more americans among the dead after a suicide bomber attacked a military patrol today in khost, afghanistan. the bomber struck a group of afghan police and u.s. troops as they walked through a market. the taliban claimed responsibility. nbc's lester holt is in kabul where he's been reporting for the past week and a half as part of a special nbc news series on region and conflict. lester, you have been on the ground, what is your take away on the green on blue attacks and this suicide attack which is different, at least the taliban taking responsibility? >> well, andrea, it's really in some ways
that brought the global economy to the brink of collapse, there have been few indictments and not a single criminal conviction of a top banking executive tied to the financial collapse. but the federal government has announced that it's now suing jpmorgan chase and its bear stearns unit for what they call a broad patent of midconduct during the housing boom. that's likely to further offend the managers who once supported the president but are now mortified because he's had the temerity to call them to account. thomas frank is a columnist with harper's magazine and the author of "pity the billionaire." great to have you. are these billionaires as pitiful as they appear. the president passed dodd frank, the stock market is more than doubled since 2008. and yet they hate him because why? >> that's a really good question, martin, but first we should take a step back and establish that they do hate him. not only are they pouring money into mitt romney's campaign, but there's a sort of literary genre out there of like what would you call it, public letters from billionaires denouncing obama. you
, profound disagreement. not only about health care, taxes, spending, economy, jobs and trade, and frankly a lot of moral and cultural issues didn't get discussed last night but i'm sure will be, but it's really about two stark choices for very different futures for america. >> cornell, do you agree with that, that it was the most sutantive debate you've seen? >> if you're in a fantasy land, because here, you've got a guy who put out a $5 trillion tax plan and all of a sudden, he disavowed that. you've got a guy who put together a health care plan in massachusetts that we sort of modeled our health care plan off, but all of a sudden, that's fantasy. what you had last night was one of the most clearly blatantly dishonest performances by someone running for the presidency of the united states i think we have ever seen in modern time. >> two very different views, obviously. cornell, appreciate it. ralph, thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> coming up, body language speaks volumes in a presidential debate. i'm often skeptical about this sort of thing but we have a fascinating look at the bod
, and government analysts blame it on a very weak economy. a new report just out this morning shows that the number of births fell 1% last year. it's fourth annual decline in a row. fewer than 4 million babies were born last year, the lowest since 1998. but analysts say the trend is reversing because the economy is improving. on that note, i think i am ready for another. >> really? talking about this. you got two. are you ready? >> some of my friend have had babies. >> you've got the fever. >> you see a little baby. >> and they smell good. >> and they grow up and they're 3 and 5 and drive mommy and daddy crazy. they're good. >>> a look at your wednesday weather, everybody. thick morning fog in boston, new york, and d.c. thunderstorms from the carolinas southward. gusty wind from seattle to minneapolis. up to a foot of snow in montana mountains. >> 50s from billings into the dakotas. 80s in colorado springs. albuquerque and across the south mostly 70s in the northeast as well as the midwest. >>> and here's a truly great story all about a guy named adam greenberg. he was on a one-game contract with t
. the evidence is this. we know the economy is slowing dramatically. we know income is down. and we know that buying power is down. that's over the last 3 1/2 years and bringing us up to the current state. if we have a second term and the president raises taxes, keeps regulation in place and keeps running up the massive debt. that's where the word recession comes in. current policies have failed to continue them into next year would possibly mean a recession in the year 2013. very significant with five weeks to go to the election. bill: the gdp is 1.3? that's like belgium. why are stocks up, stuart? >> reporter: that's a very good question. normally when the market heads south you -- normally when the economy heads south the market heads south. but ben bernanke is propping it up. martha: we have a jam packed show for you today. both candidates are hunkered down getting ready for wednesday night's debate in denver. new numbers show how many voters could still be persuaded. bill: disturbing details in fallout from operation fast & furious. new records of dozens of weapons linked to murders
advantages over romney on the economy and a range of issues. one thing that stood out in the poll is that a lot of voters didn't like how obama's handling the situation in libya. and the romney campaign sort of sees that as well which is why you see them hitting obama so hard on this lately. but there is still a problem here for romney. this is why the debates are so important. romney wants to change the fundamental structure of this race with this debate coming up next wednesday. remember, over 50 million people watched the first presidential debate in 2008. this is going to be a big moment coming up next week, fred, for mitt romney. >> well, let's shift to the u.s. senate and how pivotal any race could be. the democrats have a six-seat majority, but they're defending 23 seats in the election, with republicans defending just 10. so what would give the republicans a pretty good shot at seizing a 51-seat majority, but they also have a big problem and that is that race in missouri. >> yes. that race in missouri between todd akin, he of legitimate rape fame against democrat claire mc
